Bishop-Elect Bowers

The Synod of Bishops of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, meeting in Benoni, Gauteng, from September 24 to 26, has elected the Ven Dale Bowers MBE, Archdeacon of St Helena, as Bishop-Elect of the Diocese.


Archdeacon Bowers will succeed the Right Revd Richard Fenwick, who recently retired. Dates for his consecration and enthronement have still to be announced.

This post has been corrected, to say the date of enthronement has not yet been announced. We apologise to the Diocese of St Helena for mistakenly posting “retirement”.
